2017 promises to be an incredible year at Trevella Park – here are 10 things we can’t wait to try.
1/ Ever wanted to know how you can take better holiday photos on your mobile phone? We’ll be launching our season-long picture competition at Easter, with expert tips on how to improve your smartphone snaps.
2/ Our Ranger activities (school holiday periods) get bigger and better every year. Whether you want to learn how to fish, go on a bug hunt or pick up tips for rockpooling, we’ll teach you the tricks.
3/ Newquay hosts plenty of events through the year, but one that sounds out from the usual sea and surf extravaganzas is Art8 – Newquay’s Arts and Culture Festival (27 Apr to 1 May). There are events, exhibits and workshops of film, craft, dance, theatre, literature and more.
4/ Polo’s a fascinating sport, yet it’s one few of us get to see live. Aspall Polo On The Beach (19-21 May) brings some of the UK’s top professionals to Watergate Bay in Newquay, where we get to watch them battle each other in this fast and exciting sport.
5/ The Royal Cornwall Show (8-10 June) in Wadebridge has been going for 223 years and is Cornwall’s biggest annual event. At heart it’s an agricultural show with competitions for all types of animals, but there’s also a flower show, Cornish Heritage Centre, street theatre, fun fair and live music courtesy of BBC Radio Cornwall. It’s a cliche – but there really is something for everyone.
6/ Symphony By The Sea (4 August) is a classical concert on Newquay’s Lusty Glaze Beach that is inspired by the last night of the proms. Our advice is to get there early, pitch your blanket to mark your space, and pre-order a hampers for a spot of luxury.
7/ The UK’s hottest surf and music event comes back to Cornwall in August, with the Boardmasters Festival (9-13 August) in Newquay. Headliners at the Watergate Bay beach bash include Two Door Cinema Club, Jamiroquai, ALT-J and Jake Bugg, with world class surf and skate competitions taking place at nearby Fistral Beach.
8/ In September some of Cornwall’s most fantastic buildings and estates open their doors for free Heritage Open Days (7-10 September). This is an amazing chance to see fantastic architecture and culture in properties that are usually closed, or charge the public.
9/ Crantock’s Big Bale Push (8 September) is a fundraising event that is heartily supported by Trevella Park. The aim is for a team of four to push a whopping great straw bale – 4’6″ tall and weighing 420 lbs – around Crantock village. Why not come along to support all the teams on this crazy evening?
10/ Cornwall’s fishermen are famous, and Newquay’s Fish Festival (8-10 September) is a great chance to appreciate the work they do. There are plenty of tasting opportunities, with local chefs using their seaside skills to create incredible fish dishes.
